In December 2017 the famous porn star August Ames committed suicide in a park in the Conejo Valley. It happened a day after she’d been the victim of a pile-on, via Twitter, by fellow porn professionals - punishment for her tweeting something deemed homophobic. A month later, August’s husband, Kevin, connected with Jon Ronson to tell the story of how Twitter bullying killed his wife. What neither Kevin nor Ronson realized was that Ronson would soon hear rumors and secrets hinting at a very different story - something mysterious and unexpected and terrible.

Although I find the subject matter bothersome and it actually brings some of my own reality to the front. It’s a sad fact that on a daily basis thousands of the human race consider suicide I happen to be one of them. I was lucky in the fact that I found help. Not a lot of people do. Thank you for doing this story and making August a person instead of a static

My name is Venus. I'm a 200-year old killing machine and I'm trading in my daggers and sword for a sparkly dress and an obscene swimsuit. Tiny strips of Lycra are not my typical battle wear, but when in Oklahoma... Armed with a fairly decent attitude, two debatably heterosexual insane old ladies, a woman I'd wanted to kill less than eight hours ago, and the possible love of my undead life, I'm in over my head with this. Of course I have no clue what this is going to entail, but that's never stopped me before.

The ancient demons of Hel have awakened, and one of them is gathering forces for an invasion of Aaru - which is pretty hilarious as far as Sam is concerned. Few know that Aaru is locked down tight after she banished all the angels. Nobody can get in. Nobody. Well, maybe nobody. The one being in Hel that might be able to restore Aaru is the archangels' prodigal brother. But he's presumed dead, having not been seen in over two million years. The remote possibility of an attack on Aaru isn't Sam's only problem.

Wow this has to be the worst book in the series. If return it if I didn’t have the previous books. It just bored me. I expected much better from

The narrator needs to find another occupation she is the worst I have seen coming from audiobooks. The the chimes every 10 or so minutes. That is most activating. The book itself was ok but this narrator just destroyed it
